Loretto School U-10 (P5/6) Tournament

Mackie were fortunate to be invited to the Inaugural Lorreto School Under 10s Tournament due to Madrascals pulling out...and boy did we show them what the North East can deliver in terms of powerful, skilful rugby coming 3rd overall out of 12 private schools and local clubs.

We were placed in a group with Hawick & Prestonpans, winning the first fixture with Hawick and losing to a heavily weighted P6 equivalent Prestonpans. The boys played their socks off and best of all, a few of the things that we're drumming into them on the training field came through beautifully. Despite the 50% record we still came on top after the group stages due to the combination of fair play, respect and sportsmanship points that were used in the scoring system. We were in the Cup Semi final!

There we met Heriotts School. This was a battle to the end. Again, not one kid didn't leave the field without giving their all. We were just outscored 4-3, though the proud coaches and parents were proud as hell!

We met Portobello in the Cup 3rd place play off, where again the the kids went for all to get that bronze position. We did it in style again winning 4-2. Another superb performance out running, rucking, passing and support play. This is a squad to watch out for!

A special thanks to those players that made themselves available to a Harlequins team. Great personal effort!

So the journey began up north, totally shattered, but proud to have had given the rugby crazy schools and clubs a ver yvery good run for their money!

Well done P5 and a special mention for Hamish and James from the P6 squad. You did yourselves proud and are great teamplayers.
